Librarian Jan Burroughs reports, “The Friends decided to move the sale up a month in hopes of avoiding the frenzy of the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. However, a big ‘ol box of books makes a great Christmas present if you have a big reader in the family. Where else can you fill up a milk crate with books for under $20.00! I give my sister of huge box of the “friends” books every year for Christmas. She doesn’t care if their used or not-- just as long as it’s a good mystery!”
The Friends of the Library use the proceeds of this event to help fund several of the events for the children each summer and to support the library’s electronic book library with the Georgia Download Destination. The Friends also help fund other Library events and services throughout the year.
When you come to the sale, please consider joining the Friends of Library and help support the Elbert County Library and it’s many projects and services.
